"Child abuse is whatever the social worker decides it is. One social worker might use this against you, but if a foster parent did it, she'd decide it wasn't abusive " It absolutely would be considered abuse if a foster parent in the state of Missouri did this.

I don't have any advice/suggestions but I just read your post and wanted you to know that I hope everything works out for you.

It's got to be terribly lonely and stressful to be on the run like that.

I think those shows are extremely exaggerated for "entertainment" and shock purposes of showing two extremes.

We don't owe any bsck child support they garnished our taxes for $8000 when we filed 3 years all at once. Said we owe it.




You mention filing 3 years at one time? Could some of your garnishment be for income tax and penalities for not filing each year.

I agree that CPS will and should definitely question the judgement of the mom (you) who allowed the 10 yo to babysit 3 small children, two of which are autistic. I wouldn't push that avenue if I were in your shoes. I think you got lucky also. If you're good with CPS I would let it drop and try to st...

Letting a 10 year old babysit 1 child is dangerous, let alone 3, and 2 of them being autistic.

I hope you don't have anymore hassle from her, but I feel you are very lucky that nothing happened to your children under her (their) supervision.

Showing through actions (show up to your appointments, be on time, turn in paperwork, and just be responsible and together despite the chaos) and not just saying that you care and will do whatever it takes to brin...

with foster parents paid to be cleaners and babysitters The majority of foster parents do NOT do this for money, anyone who has done it for even a little while would see that. Parents are not the only one the state puts through hell and hoops. Is it any wonder that most foster children never do wel...

Have you talked to your attorney about that amount of money being garnished out of both of your paychecks?

I always thought any garnishment could only be a certain % of your income and never exceed that?

Re: Hi Jackie

I enjoyed reading your post about the return of your children, and I find it very commendable that you do care about the feelings of the foster family. Foster parents do have feelings, and that is something that DFS often forgets. They think that these people should be able to just act as if they w...
